  • The cave has a consistent temperature of 15°C so it's a very good summer road trip, tour guide will explain everything you want to know
  • Perfect. Nature in all her glory. Must see!
  • Fascinating cave system. Lovely and cool to visit in the height of summer. Good restaurant 200 metres away.
  • The cave itself is ok. To me, all caves are the same. The history of the cave, the area around the cave, and the cave museum are what is special about this place
  • Wrong working hours! they covered them with tape on sign.. we came there to visit to find out that is closed.. Cave itself is beautiful.. from outside P.s. great restaurant is 100m from cave
